The man with the acanthus beard

A depiction of a man with acanthus beard from the mosaic museum, one of the most underrated places in the city. The only thing that remains from the 6th century Great Palace of the Byzantine Constantinople is the floor tiles of a peristyle courtyard. A small, cosy museum to see some rare mosaic examples of non-religious topics from the Byzantine period.
